THE leader of West Sussex County Council has urged the public to support small, local charities.

Councillor Louise Goldsmith visited Brent Lodge Wildlife Hospital during Small Charity Week last week.

She said: ‘Small local charities do a lot of really good work, often on an extremely tight budget. They rely heavily on voluntary help and donations from local people, without the resources of big well-known charities to pay for advertising and large fundraising campaigns.

‘Brent Lodge does just this, and it was truly inspiring to see.’
